B. Lynch: Pull Back the Curtain
On view through February 13, 2022
Brattleboro Museum & Art Center
“B. Lynch: Pull Back the Curtain” is a multimedia installation that examines the corrosive effect of income disparity on society. Lynch uses puppetry, drawing, painting, linoleum block prints, and digital animation to create precisely rendered, meticulously detailed characters and environments.
Viewers of Lynch’s installation are introduced to a science fiction universe in which “the Reds,” well-dressed, wealthy 18th-century characters, amuse themselves, while “the Greys,” ambiguous figures who might be refugees or post-apocalyptic survivors, are hard at work.
